Textiles are a powerful medium--the association with garments and the body, evoke tactile memories. Using weaving, Steven Frost combines traditional mediums with the non-traditional, exploring ways history and time are embedded in materials. Each piece evokes specific narratives and stories, referencing aspects of the artist’s personal history, the history of the LGBTQ rights movement and queer pop icons. In workshops and interactive performance events, you'll find that the artist invites participants to weave collectively, as Frost explores ways weaving can act as a metaphor for communities working together.
Embracing amendment, growth, and transfiguration, Jack's work considers the crossroads of his naturally skewed, individual memory and its cohabitation with adjacent perspectives. With a deep consideration of how spatial and geographic experience defines our circumstance, socio-political engagement, and bizarre interactivity, Jack explores multi-medium material interactions that feel natural to the subject matter. The work rarely intends to create a polished image, but rather follows a path of development. Crossing and connecting every specific discussion and symbol, Jack's work is directly linked to his experience as a neuro-divergent, queer person--including the confusion, beauty, whimsy, and every complicated, amazing aspect that comes along with it.
